November 2, 2021

SPI/FilmBox’s FAST channels continue to travel to new markets through key alliances. Docustream, which launched in the US, India and the Netherlands this year, is now available through Amazon’s free ad-supported streaming service IMDb TV in the UK.“Though Docustream’s entry into the international market is relatively recent, we are excited to see such high demand from content aggregators worldwide for our ad-based digital channel that brings together an incomparable selection of documentaries,” said Georgina Twiss, MD Western Europe & Africa at SPI International. “Following the success of Filmstream, and with our programming expertise in the genre, we wanted to expand our FAST channel portfolio and believe Docustream is a great addition to IMDb TV, which now offers live linear channels in the UK,” added Twiss.    Docustream is an ad-supported digital channel that presents a rich collection of fascinating, award-winning documentaries and TV programming exploring the mysteries and beauty of our planet. Highlights for the month of November include Khufu Revealed, a fascinating documentary that takes the viewers on a journey to the past that uncovers mysteries surrounding ancient Egyptians; Passport to Explore, an educational travel adventure series geared towards younger viewers; and Fish Life, a visually stunning documentary that depicts the beauty of our underwater universe and the secrets of its inhabitants. IMDb TV launched three years ago in the US as a free service supported by advertising. Now, the streamer is available to both Amazon Prime members and non-members through the Prime Video app and as a standalone app on Fire TV in the UK.
